Doggie Snow Angels

NOTE: Apparently the official WordPress app I used to upload this video flipped the video vertically. I’ll see if I can fip it manually and upload again.

I’m just lucky we didn’t see any squirrels on our walk

I am dog sitting for my friends for a few days and even though it’s been hot the dogs needed a walk tonight. We obviously did not see any vermin because I still have both arms.


Saturday while the dogs and I were playing in the South Platte River, Lucy picked up an old fish hook in her leg. She didn’t act like anything was bothering her and I didn’t find it until Sunday morning while I was petting her. One of the barbs of the hook was underneath skin and I was not sure I could get it out without making a bigger problem. Since the area was not swollen or tender I decided we would wait until today to visit the vet.

The vet also was unable to back the hook out so she decided to numb the area with a local anesthetic and cut the hook out with a scalpel. Once the hook was removed the incision site was stapled shut and cleaned up a bit. Lucy was patient and calm through he whole process. After a week of antibiotics the staples will be removed.
